Over twenty years ago, VISTE leadership saw a need within its client base and reached out to volunteers to help meet that need. Thanks to the kindness of those volunteers, 100 clients received a Thanksgiving meal that first year. This year, VISTE anticipates delivering fresh hot meals, along with handmade cards and potted flowers, to approximately 1,800 clients on the day before Thanksgiving!
Volunteers also gather on the Monday of that week at First Presbyterian Church to snap pole beans to be cooked later and used in the meals.

VISTE’s mission is to enable the frail elderly to remain safely and independently in their own homes.
The needs are great, but together we are greater than the need.
